Zimbabwe – Pastor Wilson Duncan Kwambana, founder and pastor of Mount Olives Church, allegedly raped a congregant several times claiming to be strengthening her Holy Spirit, a court heard.
Pastor Kwambana, 32, yesterday appeared before the magistrate court facing eight counts of rape. The pastor allegedly told the 22-year-old mechanical engineering student that she had a very bad evil spirit in her.
The pastor later told the girl that the Holy Spirit had chosen a husband for her, and the husband who is identified as Tendai Chivangu.
In June last year, the pastor and her claimed holy spirit husband, including other members of their church went to a valley and told the girl and her holy spirit husband to have sexual intercourse that it will help chase the evil spirit in her away.
During the same month, the Pastor took the girl and other church members again to a Hill, where he had sexual intercourse with her four times in his car.
The court was told that the same team went to different places where the Pastor and her holy spirit husband took turns to have sexual intercourse with the girl.
The Magistrate court released the Pastor on $100 bail and ordered him to return to court on November 21 for trial, MyZimbabwe reports.
